My Kroger Trip Today-I Lost My Keys but Saved $128.47

If you saw a somewhat frantic woman wearing a child in a baby Ergo, pushing one child in a cart full of groceries, and holding the hand of another child, it was probably me. I finished my shopping and as I headed toward the check out lane I realized I did not have my keys. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to whomever returned them to customer service!

After all the drama here are the best deals I did get:

How about you? How is you grocery budget going? Did you get any great deals this week?


  1. I followed the link for the $1/1 Boca printable coupon and couldn’t find it. Pooh. We don’t eat meat and it’s hard to get those coupons. I have had trouble with Kraft’s site before. Maybe I’m just not bright enough.
